So on the book blog I've got a review of The Wizard and the Witch. Since whatever audience here is probably more interested in that topic than the general public, you should probably check it out.
But anyway, on Sunday I went to a lecture by Linea Van Horn-- "Blinded By The Light: Planets Conjunct The Sun."And while I was at that, she was pointing out that folks with a Sun/Mercury conjunction tend to be very fixed on their own ideas and not change their thinking even if the situation or times change. At which point I thought of the quote from Liza that I mentioned in that review!
So I had to look, and yeah, he TOTALLY has a Sun-Mercury conjunction! Almost exactly, and then he's got Mars pretty close in there as well. Oh, astrology, sometimes you nail things down so well.
On the other hand, on the same day I was having a conversation with someone else in my astrology group and she was totally flummoxed that I have artistic talent without ANY Virgo or Pisces or anything else she asked me about in my chart. I was all, "Well, I'm a Taurus" and she was all, "But that's plants," and I'm all "well, I'm just happy I don't kill all of my plants...."
